RE: VS pumps

Why not replace your existing motor with a 2 speed motor? Put it on high speed when you want to run sheer descent and lion heads and low speed for filteration.

RE: VS pumps

to tell u the truth i got my mind set on one of these and i won't stop til i get it
sickness? maybe lol

RE: VS pumps

I have no automation and use the VF as the timer and love it. Highly recommended. I understand pentair has a new model that's priced between the VS and the VF and has timers like the VF. Internet prices on these pumps are pretty reasonable.


RE: VS pumps

All intelliflos now have timers

RE: VS pumps
